One thing coaches expect during the UIL’s biennial realignment is to expect the unexpected.

This year is no different.

As the reshuffling of the deck is unveiled Monday morning at the Region One Educational Service Center in Edinburg, San Benito officials are taking a wait-and-see approach as many schools are.

One thing that is known is the UIL’s new 6A conference, the state’s largest, will be in play and San Benito will join it. In a nutshell, teams in current 5A conferences will move up to 6A, 4A will be 5A, 3A will be 4A, and so on. Also, the term “Week Zero” is out; however, there will still be 11 weeks of play, just beginning with Week One and ending with Week Eleven.
